uncertainty


Uncertainty is an estimate of error in mathematical terms. This expression must be defined exactly and is typically expressed using the standard deviation. Where error is the difference between the true value and a result or the mean, the uncertainty is an expression involving a calculation where the deviation (difference between mean and individual result) is used. The hope is that the true value (which will never be known by man) is within the expressed uncertainty under the specified conditions.
